My 1999 Toyota Rav4 has trouble starting, especially on humid days. Engine turns over and usually starts, but hesitates under acceleration. Strong gasoline smell. Allowing car to idle, with mild accelerator pressure (like driving around the block at low speeds) eventually overcomes hesitation. My hunch is that it's something with the fuel injection, perhaps condensation in the fuel lines, or a cracked hose. Any other ideas? How to check?
